Abstract

The era of globalization requires all parties to improve the quality of their competence through education, whether formal education, non-formal, or informal. Vocational Education (VE) is one form of non-formal education activities that can answer these demands. However, from the observed phenomenon, it is known, many of the VE course graduates are not ready to work based on the ability they achieved. Allegedly this unpreparedness is caused by achievement motivation factor. Therefore, this study aims to see the relationship and contribution of achievement motivation with and to the preparedness of VE course participants in Learning Activity Centers of Padang City. This study was designed with correlational research design with a population of 40 people. Samples are drawn by random sampling technique, as much as 80% of the population, ie 32 people. Data were analyzed by simple regression analysis technique. Based on the research findings, it was concluded that achievement motivation correlated significantly with working preparation VE course participants with the price of rX of 0.807. Thus, it is known that achievement motivation contributes significantly to the job preparedness of VE course participants. In this regard, it is necessary to develop the achievement motivation by all parties involved in the educational activities.
